Created exclusively for The Golden Tiki’s cabinet of curiosities by Smithsonian artist Terry Barr, the head was sculpted over the course of four weeks, referencing photos of The Gazillionaire to ensure physical accuracies, including his gold tooth.
Before introducing The Gazillionaire, Monti Rock III took to the stage, saying The Golden Tiki was his favorite hangout.
The Gazillionaire thanked The Golden Tiki for the great honor, adding, “If you want to get a little Gazillionaire head, you can come here now. I’m happy to be enclosed in a glass case with Carrot Top for all of eternity.” He gave his head a kiss on the lips and posed for photos with fans.
The Gazillionaire joins the bar’s growing collection of famous shrunken heads, including Marky Ramone of The Ramones, Carrot Top, Frank Marino, Robin Leach, Norm Clarke, Claire Sinclair, Murray Sawchuck, Vinnie Paul of Pantera, Chris Phillips of Zowie Bowie, Monti Rock III, Lonnie Hammargren, Rich Little and Piff the Magic Dragon.
